This timely work presents principles for resolving transnational intellectual property disputes. Transnational protection of rights to intellectual property is a critical issue today when intellectual property can be transferred around the globe—legally or illegally—with several clicks on a keyboard. These principles adapt traditional legal concepts to the world of the Internet and foster coordination between civil-law and common-law jurisdictions. Topics include personal jurisdiction over the defendant; jurisdiction over subject matter and simplification; applicable law on title to and transfer of rights; and recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments.
